Tips and questions relating to the GPS modules from SFE
By PedroRebelo

I recently purchased an GM862 EVK V3 Evaluation Board with a USB connector.
I know the board has an on/off push button, but I want to turn the GM862-GPS module ON as soon as I power it up through USB.

I can't just press down the button because the whole unit is going to be inside a box...

Any ideas?

In the interface board, there're a lot of pins that have diversus functions, one pin is special for ON/OFF, you can use this with the circuit depicted in the Hardware User Guide...

Sorry, English isn't my first language
